“The great German synth player Bernhard Wöstheinrich, founder of Iapetus Media and Centrozoon, here reveals his secrets for what makes a good electronic sound. He and I experiment with some sounds he likes, some he dislikes. Together we learn to listen to and to shape the unknown.” – David Rothenberg

A Berlin-Philadelphia international collaboration between Motzer/Wöstheinrich has seen the release of several ‘electronic meets the avant garde’ albums on 1k recordings; and live concerts in Berlin, Philadelphia, and New York over the past decade. Bernhard conjures the German School, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, and beyond with his sequential synth imagination colliding with Motzer’s textural, ethereal laser beam guitar. The two together push the edge of electronic music towards unknown territories. A rare treat to welcome them back to Philadelphia for this very special concert. Not to be missed.
